not feeling bullied, per se, but something maybe just as painful. feeling invisible and alone. >> it used to break my heart, because i would get calls from lilly almost on a daily basis she had finished lunch, but she really didn't have anybody to eat with so she was always hiding in the girls' bathroom. >> reporter: it was at lilly's funeral after some of her writings from that time were read that a group of her peers approached laura. >> and had they known that lilly was feeling that left out in middle school, they might have been more aware, and might have done something different. >> we want to do something to honor lilly. >> reporter: it was the birth of beyond differences. laura and her group of trained high school ambassadors have since spoken to tens of thousands of middle schoolers. sharing their message of kindness and inclusion. >> invite people. >> and their program, no one eats alone day, has spread like wild fire across the country.
as the organization has grown, though, laura says the focus has shifted away from lilly, and she's okay with that. laura never wanted it to be a static memorial for her daughter. she wanted a dynamic force for good in the world. and she thinks they're well on their way. >> these children are going to grow up in the next 15 years and become parents, and my money is on them. >> they do a number of programs and no one eats alone day, you mentioned thousands of schools. half a million kids across the country participating. they hold it in february, and that is just one of their very many successful programs they're running and it continues to grow. >> and spreading pretty fast. thank you, garvin. talk about our weather now. dozens of water agencies across california may only get 20% of the water they requested for next year. however, that is still more than twice what those agencies got a year ago. a winter storm in this coming
months may boost our water allocations but officials warn we're still in a deep drought and one year won't make up the difference. we bring in jeff ranieri now. we're talking about rain, probably not in the next few days, though, right? >> the next two weeks, our chances of getting major systems trending downward. we have the chance of a spotty shower in the next 24 hours. let's get you to our microclimate weather of san jose and the shark tank. we have mostly clear skies at the current moment and 55 degrees. and you'll see as we head throughout 10:00 p.m. tonight, we're dropping down to a cold 47. as we get a look at the wider picture across the pacific, we have this weaker system we're following. the associated cold front the biggest change for us and maybe a isolated shower or two. so for tomorrow morning's forecast, not the clearest start. also cold, to begin here for the south bay 42 degrees. 45 in the peninsula.
down to 39 for the tri valley. those clouds also continue across the east bay with temperatures near from 39 in the north bay to 44 for the east bay. i'll show you the futurecast next and you'll see once again the areas of overcast we'll deac with throughout tomorrow morning. notice the rainfall offshore as we advance this it just becomes very spotty in nature. but we can't rule out maybe a drop or two around 1:30 in the afternoon near san francisco. also the peninsula. and maybe, just maybe into tomorrow evening, possibly down for the south bay and also the east bay. but again, i think the biggest thing you'll notice on our microclimate forecast the skies not nearly as blue as we head throughout the forecast. 59 in fill roy, 60 in millipede as. no huge changes as you travel across the bay area. upper 50s and low 60s for the east bay. the peninsula, 59 in palo alto. 57 in belmont. and 58 in san mateo.
6 miles per hour, anywhere from 56 in the out ersunset. and 58 in the mission. for the north bay, 57 in mill valley and 58 in novato. with no big storm systems in the next two weeks, it gives us pause here. because we've had so much rain in september, october, and also november. december is usually the month where we begin to see our averages move up. san francisco over 4 inches typically for the month. if we don't see something close to this, i really think our most recent gains could be lost. so we're hoping for at least a few storms by the end of the month. that's for sure. you can see in the seven-day forecast conditions stay dry. as we head throughout all the way into next tuesday, 50s to low 60s for san francisco and for the inland valleys, a similar trend coming our way. notice as we get all the way, yes, to next monday, overnight lows could be the coldest we have seen in several months. maybe down to the freezing mark
again by next monday morning. >> i think i'm going to wash my car for the first time. >> i'm going to give you the okay after tomorrow. >> a jacket, though. thanks so much, jeff. still to come, deadly fires in tennessee continue to burn wildly, threatening this well-known attraction. we'll take you there, next. a major victory off the court
